After promising to ship the white iPhone 4 model later this month on last Friday. Apple today announced that they would again delay white iPhone 4 launch until later this year. The company didn’t provide any estimated shipping date or the real reason behind the delay. Apple’s official statement just said:

White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

There are many speculations going around about the white iPhone 4 delay, some say that it’s because of the thickness of white color paint on the glass enclosure and other say that it’s because of the antenna issue. Whatever may be the case, one thing we know for sure is that the delay is because of the external enclosure design and not the internal hardware, as the white iPhone 4 models will use the same internal hardware, which is working fine on the black model.
